Holidaymakers looking to keep their costs down without sacrificing travel insurance should consider taking an all-inclusive holiday package deal or shortening the length of their trip.
That is one of the findings from a new survey by Thomas Cook, which identified Goa as the cheapest destination for British travellers, where a cup of coffee is ten times cheaper than in the UK.
A spokesperson for the company explained that the Cost of Living survey had highlighted a "fantastic" array of destinations that offer good value for money.
The representative advised: "An all-inclusive holiday is ideal if you want to stick to a tight budget, as you will pay for meals, drinks and some activities in advance.
"Also, think about whether a shorter holiday of ten or 11 nights is more affordable for you than a 14 night holiday."
According to Thomas Cook, Brits can find favourable exchange rates in north African destinations including Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco.
